To propose a session, please provide:
• A draft title for the session;
• The theme in which it should appear;
• Indication whether this is to be an oral session,
a poster-only session, or a poster session supporting an oral session;
• A one paragraph description outlining the scope of the session;
• At least three likely presenters
(which may include the session proponents, keynote and invited presenters);
• A candidate keynote presenter (optional);
• An additional candidate invited presenter (optional).
Posters will be prominently displayed during the conference, and dedicated poster sessions are strongly encouraged. Poster sessions will be allocated a scheduled time for presenters to explain their work and take questions.
Please refer to the website www.aesc2014.gsa.org.au or the June 2013 edition of TAG (The Australian Geologist, the newsletter of the Geological Society of Australia) for detailed descriptions of the themes. You may wish to discuss your proposal with the convenors of the relevant theme prior to lodging, to ascertain whether similar or potentially overlapping sessions have already been planned. In addition to the six themes, the convention will also host two symposia (39th Symposium on Advances in Study of the Sydney Basin, and Comparison and Contrasts in Circum-Pacific Orogens). Proposed sessions should avoid overlap with these symposia.
The theme convenors, together with the 2104 AESC Organising Committee, will decide the sessions to be accepted before the issuing of the Call for Abstracts, and will allocate accepted abstracts to sessions.
The deadline for session proposals is 30 August 2013.
